titles-about

At Upsidedown Tours we specialize on outstanding inland adventures that range from mellow sightseeing, birding and archaeological tours to hard core adventure expeditions in the Cayo District and within the Maya Mountains of Belize.

We are located in central Belize, Cayo District, 8 Miles from the capital city Belmopan, through the admired natural beauty that surrounds the winding Hummingbird Highway. Our community is Armenia Village which is just four miles from the famous St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park and 14 miles from Five Blues Lake National Park. We are also 45 minutes away from the world famous ATM Cave (Actun Tunichil Muknal).

Let’s say that we take a drive from Corozal Town in Northern Belize to Punta Gorda Town in Southern Belize, we go through the Districts of Corozal, Orange Walk and the Belize District where the topography is generally flat. Within a few minutes from Belize City we see the northern edge of the Maya Mountains towering out of the coastal low lands. As we get closer to the the Hummingbird Highway we see the abundance and diversity of inland Belize. From Belmopan to the coastal town of Dangriga we pass communities with the most awe inspiring landscapes of Belize and the Maya Mountains.

We now approach Armenia Village, our senses are suddenly filled with joy as our eyes comb the landscape admiring its tremendous natural expression. Some of the best views of Central America and Belize extend from our location to the coast. Our geographic location for nature’s beauty and adventure is unrivalled through Central Belize.

The limestone topography of the Maya Mountains is permeated with many underground rivers that are part of giant cave systems; add the jungle and venture outside with us into the home of over 3000 species of vascular plants, 163 species of mammals, 84 species of bats, 40 species of reptiles/amphibians and almost 600 species of birds.

We invite you to venture outside with us!
